Legume seedpod crops are commercially very important for human consumption, livestock forage, silage, and nitrogen-rich ‘green manure’.

The trefoil leaves have leaflets with a minute point. The flowers appear from April. This is not a medicinal plant, as its name might indicate, but a native of Iran, whose name in ancient times was Media.
